1965 Mustang 2+2 (SEMA)

Ford Racing Performance Parts (FRPP) unveiled at this year's Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show: a fully restored 1965 Mustang 2+2 powered by a special version of FRPP's hot new 5.0 liter 4-valve Cammer crate engine. It's the perfect marriage of Ford's Mustang performance heritage and the latest in advanced modular V8 technology. A vintage 'Stang was chosen because any automotive hobbyist can relate to it - and one that many Ford Racing Performance Parts customers already own, modify and enjoy. 5.0 liters of displacement, forged pistons, an 11.0:1 compression ratio, ported heads, higher-lift cams and beehive-shaped valve springs. The original intake system was replaced by a classic downdraft carburetor setup, with four 2 barrel Webers sitting atop a custom Ford Racing intake. Delivering a healthy 420 horsepower at 6700 rpm. And the torque curve peaks at about 395 foot-pounds at 400rpm. At project headquarters, McLaren Performance Technologies in Livonia, Michigan, the donor 1965 Mustang was totally disassembled and rebuilt from the ground up. National Parts Depot Convertible Chassis Components were installed in place of the stock running gear, and a Heidt's Double A-Arm front suspension was employed to provide some modern handling ability. Power to the pavement is a Centerforce Clutch kit and a heavy duty Tremec five-speed. Ford Racing provided prototype sway bar, traction bars and a custom cold-air induction hood.
